Chiropractic Care is For The Dogs (Literally)

You know all the benefits that chiropractic care adds to your life? Well, it turns out that it may also apply to your best friend… your four-legged one, that is. Yes, chiropractic has now become a type of therapy that your dog can also enjoy. Animal chiropractic care is not just for your pup either, it can be administered on practically any animal, offering relief from aches and pains, as well as more serious conditions. 

Animal chiropractic can be especially helpful for animals that are showing signs of stiffness or loss of mobility. They may be experiencing pain that may be hindering them from move as much as they used to. Since chiropractic focuses on the realignment of the spine, it may be able to really help animals who are experiencing this type of pain. Just normal, daily movements can cause injury, especially with older pets.

If your animal’s spine has fallen out of alignment due to walking, running, jumping or playing, then the chiropractor will be able to use quick, firm manipulations to put the spine back into its optimal place, hopefully reducing, if not completely removing, the pain from the body. 

Some vets feel like chiropractic care can make a difference in all the aspects of a pet’s life, from pain level to heart health to flea and tick prevention. Animal chiropractic may be able to compliment the traditional veterinary work that is normally done on animals. Many vets want to make it clear that one should not replace the other, but they should work together as a full healthcare program for your pet. This safe treatment may really make a difference in your pet’s personality, helping them go from sad and sulky to active and happy. 

Chiropractic is a way to treat your pet without the use of medicine. It is a more holistic approach to healthcare, treating the nervous system first and foremost. Chiropractors believe that if the nervous system is not functioning properly, then the body is not going to be healthy. By allowing the nervous system to work at its optimal level, then the rest of the body will be able to as well. 

For example, if your pet is suffering from a pinched nerve, chiropractic treatments may be able to help immediately relieve the pain your pet is experiencing, without the use of pain medications. This may offer fast, natural relief that is safe for the animal. The adjustment process is gentle enough to not hurt the animal, but assertive enough to be effective.
